Lloyds Banking Group (LLOY) reported strong earnings last Friday, boosting investors’ confidence in the company. Lloyds has topped the list of the most popular stocks on Morningstar.co.uk for the last 19 months in a row, as the bank’s fortunes have steadily increased.

Coming second on April’s most popular list was fertilizer provider Sirius Minerals (SXX), followed by energy giant BP (BP.) which has today announced tripled profits for the first three months of 2017.

Utilities stocks were also on Morningstar readers’ radar last month; their shares prices fell as the Conservative Party announced plans to cap energy bills if they win the General Election in June. National Grid (NG.) and Centrica (CNA) came fifth and ninth in the most watched list last month.
